Kuhl Family Dairy Farm

 

Recently we traveled to the Kuhl family dairy farm in Wisconsin to capture the family working with their cows. We arrived at the farm just as the sun was rising over the cow barn. Shooting quickly, we followed the farmers as their did their normal morning routines. It's fast paced constantly dealing with changing light going from inside the barns to the outdoors. You have to be quick on your toes and your camera settings to hang with these farmers.  Their milk is used to make cheese and butter for a local dairy co-op.

The highlights of the shoot was when we finished and hung out in the dairy barn and drank fresh milk. The perfect way to cap off a great shoot.

I recently called up local DP, Adam Buck, to see if he would be interested in doing a test shoot with me. His reply was something to the tune of "Hells yes!" This shoot was something I had in mind for the last year. There is such a dynamic working with horses from the sheer power they have to the skill of the rider.

Working closely with the rider we captured the atmosphere and energy of riding.   The use of slow-motion Adam captured really amplifies the energy of the horse as it goes full speed around the barrel, something that only lasts a moment yet is so complex when slowed down. At the end of the day we were happy with the outcome of our collaboration and the final product.
